The Jamestown Foundation is happy to announce the launch of a new website: Stealth War. Based upon the strategic insights offered by Jamestown Board Member Brigadier General (ret.) Robert Spalding in his best-selling book, Stealth War: How China Took Over While America’s Elites Slept, this new website will be a compendium of the most up-to-date news articles and research from throughout the world on Chinese strategy.
Brigadier General Spalding’s eye-opening book tracked the Chinese Communist Party’s insidious efforts to co-opt American technology, finances and industry to subsidize its own economic expansion and establish a new form of global supremacy that suppresses the freedoms the United States was founded upon.
While Senior Director for Strategy to the President, Spalding began raising the alarm on China’s strategy to defeat the United States without resorting to open conflict. Beijing is operating under the rules of “Unrestricted Warfare,” engaging in a non-military conflict with the United States that prioritizes the use of economic, cyber and espionage tools. People’s Liberation Army cyber divisions can steal intellectual property. Beijing can pressure Western businesses to censor their employees speech or risk being excluded from the Chinese market. Debt traps can be used to seize strategic ports.
Stealth War is designed to be a policy reference tool for tracking China in key areas and will help assist the broader policy and business community in tackling competition with China. This website will be a key resource for all those seeking to track the most recent developments of China’s ongoing Stealth War with the United States.
